    I’m looking forward to brushing up on my knitting skills. My Mom taught me to knit when I was younger, but I need a refresher! I am also left handed, so I think I have to do knitting differently. I am looking forward to this opportunity- thanks.

      I started knitting socks and finished 2 pair and a half. I enjoy knitting socks but most of all I enjoy wearing them. My difficulty is in interpreting the patterns instructions. When I tried an Afghan it turned out wonky. Seems to be when I start a new row.

      I am also left-handed but have been knitting ‘right-handed’ for almost 60 years because I was taught by right-handed knitters. I think it’s all about practice – the more you do it, the more natural it feels! I experiment sometimes with different ways to hold the needles and the yarn, but I always come back to the way I was taught because it feels easiest.

    I did know there were different ways to do the cast on. I always did the long tail, however, I didn’t know that the length of the tail would determine the number of casting stitches. Thank you so much.

    I am having surgery next week and don’t know what shape I’ll be in after. I will be wearing a hard collar around my neck but I’m thinking I should be able to get the basics – and a cowl will hide some of the collar! Will it be possible for me to go online when I am up for it? What size needles do I need? I do have quite a few, not to mention lots of yarn since I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time.

    Thank you so much for sharing, for me it is very usefull, though I speak English, the knitting terms are little difficult for me to understand, but with the esplanation and the videos is much easier to me to know what you are talking about. Again thank you so much. Blessings from Guatemala.

    It’s been years since I’ve knit anything, looking to refresh knitting skills. Feel like I throw my yarn backwards as the “v’s” aren’t straight, they appear at a slant… lol

    This looks doable. My schedule is very busy for the next month so I will have to stretch it out.

    My Mother was an avid knitter. I have her knitting needles. She died a number of years ago and I have been kicking myself that I didn’t ask her to teach me. So, this is very exciting to me. I have lots of time as I am retired and find knitting to be sooo relaxing. I also Crochet and I love how fast that goes, however, my preference is to knit. Thank you for this!
